This Vintage Ferrari Testarossa Is Restored To Its Former Glory

The YouTube channel “Harry’s Garage” might give the impression of a buddy’s messy, grease-stained garage filled with rusty automobiles. However, it belongs to Harry Metcalf, the co-founder of EVO magazine and a prolific contributor of automotive literature. Harry boasts considerable wealth, and his supercar collection is valued in the millions.

Recently, he apportioned some of his wealth to the meticulous restoration of his vintage Ferrari Testarossa, and the result is nothing short of spectacular – it appears as if it has just rolled off the production line back in 1984.

The Testarossa boasts a naturally aspirated 4.9 L (4,943 cc) longitudinally-mounted Tipo F113 flat-12 engine, equipped with DOHC and 4 valves per cylinder (a total of 48 valves). Power is rated at 390 PS; 385 hp at 6,300 rpm, and a peak torque of 490 N⋅m (361 lb⋅ft) at 4,500 rpm.

In terms of performance, the Testarossa can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.8 seconds, reaching 161 km/h (100 mph) in 11.4 seconds. The Testarossa’s estimated top speed is an impressive 290 km/h (180 mph).
